The dentistry field contains several subspecialties and particular areas of focus. Lawsuits involving dentistry are usually brought about by medical malpractice, particularly when an error takes place during a dental surgical procedure, such as oral or maxillofacial surgery, or a dental implant failure. Such errors can cause great discomfort, injury, or even death in patients, which can lead to the inevitable court case.
Dental restoration is a specialty of dentistry that works to correct a damaged tooth by applying a restorative material. This procedure is also referred to as dental filling and works to restore the functionality and healthy condition of a tooth that has been worn down either by sudden damage or gradually over time. This procedure, as well as other similar forms of oral surgery, is considered rehabilitative dentistry. Restorative implants are also utilized in oral surgery, which includes cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry.
In all surgical procedures, the patient must be informed of the medical details before agreeing to and undergoing such care. Whether it involves fixing crowns or bridges, performing root canals, or the practice of general, operative, or prosthetic dentistry for adults and children.
In additional to malpractice claims, dentists might be retained as dentistry expert witnesses to provide expert opinion on dental injuries. Submit An Expert Request Form or call ForensisGroup today for additional information on retaining a qualified dentistry expert witness for your case.
